I messed up taking BC pills a few weeks ago and my bf and I had unprotected sex. For the past week, I have been feeling nausea, gassy, bloated, lightheaded, and unable to sleep. Six days ago I was cramping and experienced dark bleeding. It only lasted approximately two and a half days and got lighter each day. I have taken at home pregnancy tests which resulted in a negative and a very faint positive line. I went to get a blood pregnancy test and the result was negative. I do not have a period at all so I am confused with the symptoms I have been experiencing. Even though I have received a negative blood pregnancy test, is there still a chance I could be pregnant?

Thanks for asking in Ehealth Forum.
As because the pregnancy tests are negative,the chance of getting pregnant is nil here.Moreover,you have a cycle after that exposure which rules out the possibility of getting pregnant by all means.But you might have an irregular cycle or absent cycle as you have messed up with your pills and those are hormonal.You might have a late next cycle.Let it occur and then restart the fresh pack from the day 1 of the next cycle.Meanwhile,use barrier contraceptive like condoms.
